    Episode 79: Your Diet Could Be Sabotaging Your Focus

    Episode 79: Your Diet Could Be Sabotaging Your Focus

    There are so many external factors trying to get your attention these days that it’s no wonder focus can be hard to find. So why is it when you finally get some quiet time to focus on the things you really want to, your mind keeps wandering? 

    It could be that you’ve been conditioned to jump from one thing to the next, but it could also be that your body is working against you! Brain fog and inability to focus can be directly linked to the things you eat (or don’t eat), and in this episode, I’m calling them out. 

    Once you see the connection between food and focus, you can make small adjustments that will make your brain happier, clearer, and ready to get down to business. 

     

    Here’s a Peek at the Episode

    [01:16] Why bother improving your focus? 
    [03:24] Your soda is slowing down your brain.
    [03:57] Rethink your relationship with fat.
    [05:15] What more than half of the people listening to this are suffering from.
    [06:00] The common culprit causing your brain fog. 
    [06:38] The reason food sensitivities matter.

    Episode 78: The Positive Side of Positivity

    Episode 78: The Positive Side of Positivity

    When you think of positive thinking, what comes to mind? Optimism, maybe? Or sayings like “the glass is half full” or “look at the bright side”? These are definitely side effects of positive thinking, but they don’t fully encompass what positive thinking is nor why you should work at it. 

    In today’s episode, I’m sharing the very real benefits of positivity and how they will affect your successes in life, your relationships, and even your brain! Once I’ve convinced you that everyone should work on being more positive, I’ve got three easy ways you can increase your positive thoughts starting today. 

    Here’s a Peek at the Episode

    [01:12] The positivity snowball.
    [02:18] Positivity affects your brain in several (positive) ways
    [03:35] Create an abundance of solutions and opportunities with positivity
    [06:44] Why it’s important to distinguish between positivity and optimism. 
    [08:05] Three simple ways to work on your positivity starting today. 
    [10:45] The connection between today’s topic and why I became a Certified High-Performance Coach.

    Episode #77: Let Go Of The Past For a Clearer Future

    Episode #77: Let Go Of The Past For a Clearer Future

    If you want to move forward toward the Extraordinary Life you’re craving, but find yourself feeling stuck or blocked in some way, it may be time to examine your past. 

    Whether consciously or subconsciously, the past can hold a powerful grip on your self-esteem and motivation. It can even cause you to self-sabotage the things that you really want in life. 

    If you think your past might be holding you back, today’s episode will show you exactly why you need to shake it, thoughts to examine, and all the benefits from saying “goodbye” to what no longer serves you. I’ll even give you a glimpse into my past and how it was affecting my business and my relationships. 

    Letting go of the past doesn’t mean forgiveness or minimizing your journey. Rather, it’s all about self-empowerment and taking control of your life and your own future. 

    Here’s a Peek at the Episode

    [01:14] The past can have a powerful effect on your everyday life.
    [03:35] A resentment from my past that was subconsciously holding me back.
    [07:38] The precious gift you can give yourself. 
    [08:32] Exactly why letting go of the past is so empowering.
    [10:05] How to live going forward, so you don’t get tangled up in the past again.
    [11:20] Look for the silver lining.

    Episode #76: Clean Up Your Mental Clutter

    Are you feeling… 


    Overwhelmed?
    Distracted?
    Unfocused?
    Lost?

    A lot of these symptoms point to an overflowing mind that needs to be decluttered. Just like it's impossible to find a safety pin in the junk drawer, you can’t expect your mind to perform when it’s overflowing.

    In this episode, I’m sharing five types of mental clutter and how they are holding you back. All you need to do is decide to “clean house” so you can feel lighter, more focused, and back on track to achieving your dreams. 

    Here’s a Peek at the Episode

    [01:05] Your physical space affects your mental health, too.
    [02:30] Overwhelmed women in an overstimulated world.
    [03:45] Five types of mental clutter that can cloud your mind. 
    [10:45] The common thread that runs through them all. 
    [11:35] Three things that are making your mental clutter worse.
    [15:58] Where to start to declutter your mind.

Grateful!

As a psychologist, my job is to help people address, heal, and overcome the psychological obstacles, often rooted in the past, to living a life full of meaning, connection, and purpose. The focus of therapy is often on ways past conditioning colors and limits present perception and behavior that lead to immense suffering and a life full of constraints. Crystal’s podcast has been my introduction to the coaching model where she helps people take the next crucial step of focusing on the future in order to walk people through how to design an intentional life aligned with what matters most to them. Many people know they are dissatisfied with their current life path, yet have no idea how to go about creating a new direction. Crystal provides simple, practical tools to help us move from overwhelm to action in first creating and then realizing our dreams. I particularly like her emphasis on prioritizing health and balance while still aiming high with one’s goals. Since listening to her podcast, I have established a powerful morning routine in which I set my short and long term intentions and find that more energy is now focused on what I want to grow in myself and my world and less on the trivial distractions. Much gratitude to you Crystal!
